Dents are something that all cars are going to have sooner or later. It is always best to find the most economical and easy method for removal. Traditional dent repair involves filling the dent with body filler then painting it to match the exterior of the car. Though this does make the dent appear to be gone, it does not actually remove the dent, simply fills it. This is the traditional method for removing dents and it has worked for a long time – but it is not as effective as paintless dent repair. Paintless dent repair, or PDR, is a method by which the dent is actually removed.
